Sundays and Tuesdays (ages 0-10 years)
We help children to build personal relationships with Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit through understanding, exploring and applying the Bible in a relevant, child-friendly way.
All our staff and volunteers are DBS-checked and trained to care for your child. A copy of our Child Protection Policy can be made available on request.
We love children… and they love JC!
Our classes are positive and faith-filled with facilities that are colourful and child-friendly. Our team bring an attitude of joy and impart life to children at every age.
JC teaches children the Word of God by studying key themes and stories in the Bible. You can be sure that every child is given the opportunity to learn the Word, live it and love the Lord.
Church has moved online for the duration of the lockdown – and so has JC! Each week we put new videos, links, notes and resources here to equip you to recreate JC at home. Worship with our JC YouTube playlist, listen to a Bible story read by one of our team, download the activities and lesson notes, follow along with a make, and join in the memory verse challenge! We’ve got everything you need to help build your child’s faith.
MEMORY VERSE CHALLENGE
Learn the verse, record it and upload it to social media. Tag us @hcityc and we’ll repost the best!
“Jesus is not here. He has risen from death! Do you remember what he said in Galilee? He said that the Son of Man must be given to evil men, be killed on a cross, and rise from death on the third day.” (Luke 24:6-7, ICB)

Support your child’s journey
There are loads of resources out there to help you talk to your kids about Jesus.
